The people and enterprises that 1M1B support address a very specific local issue which potentiates a big social impact in the community.

Opportunity

Close

We see youth and women getting skilled in creating jobs not just for themselves but also others and overcoming conversations like:

  • There are no jobs.
  • I am at a disadvantage.
  • The government should give me a job.
  • I have to migrate for economic opportunities.
  • Entrepreneurship is for people with good financial backing.
  • Enterprise creation is hard and not for me.

1M1B is a skill development, entrepreneurship education and an enterprise acceleration initiative that will solve the challenge of unemployment of youth and women in underserved economies.
